university faculties this way. 51% are democrats. 35% are independent. just 14% republican. in fact, some the top donors to president obama last year were colleges. the university of california gave the president a whopping $1,200,000. unbelievable. harvard university almost $700,000. so you can see that american college students are mostly caught in a liberal environment whether they like it or not. enter ryan row rotela a student north of fort lauderdale. vine mormon enrolled in a communications class taught by the vice chairman of the democratic party if you can believe it dr. deandre poole has been a democratic activist, an activist for years. yet, is he running that class. and as part of the course, dr. poole apparently ordered his students to disrespect jesus. >> he said everybody write jesus on bold letters so what i did was wrote jesus just like this. afterwards he said everybody put it on the floor. he took it out. put it on the floor and he had us all stand up once we were standing up he said stomped on it that's when i picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on

. an important distinction that karl rove wants me to make. he sent me an e-mail, while he could see a republican candidate supporting gay marriage, that's not necessarily saying the nominee will do so. but here's the thing. the politics around gay marriage are changing and changing fast. it's been less than a year since president obama himself dropped his opposition to gay marriage in that interview with our colleague, robin roberts. and now, even some prominent republicans are settling on the same position. >> and, rick, you study these political poll lines. what is the trending telling us right now? >> it is moving so fast. in 2004, during george w. bush's re-election, we asked in a poll if gay marriage should be legal. and only 32% said yes. this month, that number is up to 58%. that's a tectonic shift. >> rick klein, with the bigger picture, as always. rick, thank you. >>> we turn overseas to the vatican, where pope francis celebrated his first palm sunday mass, to begin the holy week leading up to easter. from the steps of st. peter's, he urged the crowd of worshippers to be humble and youn

we get to the news live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. president obama's renewed push for a grand bargain may be showing some early signs of paying off, at least with one top republican. senator bob corker of tennessee says he could envision raising tax revenue if democrats embrace big changes to medicare and social security. corker's position on sunday puts him at odds with other members of his party including house speaker john boehner who's ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues and that doesn't mean increasing rates, that means closing loopholes. it also means arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january th

republicans in this survey supporting public investment in infrastructure spending, and, you know, well -- it's obama has been calling for it for ages, but we know it's utterly impossible. so let's bash harry reid but they are the problem. >> michael: clearly they are the problem, on the assault weapons i'm just frustrated with reid. and you point out 80-some-odd percent on infrastructure and i heard 84% of nra members are for background checks so i don't know who they are listening to. what do you make of that gop autopsy? >> well, it was pretty superficial and pretty silly, and i think it's very interesting that that exact same day, and i'll have a piece about this up at the "daily beast" tomorrow, if i may get in that quick little plug but that very same day that reince priebus was at the national press club talking about the need to reach out to latinos, you had the president nominate thomas perez, and you had three republican senators, all white men, raise all kinds of questions about this guy, and say he is the wrong man for the job, so that's who they are. rein
've reached a point where virtually every major republican figure is on board for comprehensive reform. it's huge. >> you have a pragmatic reason for a lot of the republicans -- latinos make up 10% of the electorate they favor president obama, 71% to 27%, and then, you know, the rnc put out this autopsy on the election. >> right. >> and it clearly states, quote, we must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. if we do not, our party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. does it matter if it's pragmatism or not? whether they really want it or not. >> i'm not sure how much it matters. the important thing is it's happening. and especially for the young people, the dreamers, for so many people who have been struggling and looking for a way to be part of this country, it does matter. and for the republicans, it's not just a question of, say, political survival, there really is a tremendous potential for rewards for them. because polling by latino decisions shows that about 1/3 of latinos would be open to a republican candidate if the gop supports immig
. >> bill: i was getting to that. >> that's right. and republicans said if you are going to raise the debt ceiling they still want the same amount of cuts to go through. president obama has made it very clear to house republicans he is not going to negotiate on debt ceiling, just pass it clean, but they are probably going to put up a fight. >> bill: democrats last time made a lot of political hay, by taking the ryan budget and hanging it republican's necks. and they are going to do that this time? >> i am told they are making at it central focus of the 2014 campaign. however, republicans -- remember what happened last time. and they are trying to get out in front now. this budget balances the budget in ten years. they are confidence the balanced budget message will resinate with the american people. and so there are the first television ads using the balanced budget message as their key point in new york and florida. >> bill: interesting they would pick new york and florida. here is what one of those ads -- and everybody does this. they'll run the ad on cable television,

want to add to this, i think in a sense obama was right. and i think boehner is right. i think a lot of republicans go too far in this whole point. the immediacy of this crisis -- look, even the cbo says you've got ten years or so before the deficit starts going back up and so forth and so on. but i do -- i do think -- i do think it's an interesting theme. that's all i'm saying. >> i agree. we have to remember, the budget deficit was 10% of gdp in 2009. now it's 5. and going down to 2 or 3 and then it's going to start going up again. >> $800 billion now. >> that's all. and those pressures, by the way, coming from health care costs, not from a lot of the stuff they're talking about cutting the discretionary part of the budget. but on the corporate tax thing, i hate to introduce root canal again be, but if you want to get down to 25%, the white house said 28% and it's a goal that probably all of us would embrace, you're going to have to close a bunch of loopholes. if you want it to be at least revenue-neutral -- >> which the president has said he would have -- not the corporate, the pe

of imperfect storm here during the obama administration. you have the republicans, many of whom support thedea of more presidential authority in the use of force, and you have a lot of democrats who don't want to criticize the president. you have a heads and -- you have a hesitancy to have the proper debate. the libya example is a very important one to look at. ,ost: congresswoman barbara lee a guest earlier today, pointing to the use of military force after 9/11 after the terrorist attack. "if that was a turning point, it gave too much broad authority to the executive branch." guest: there is some truth to that. we have an inherent right to self-defense as a nation, which allows us to take actions against international terrorist organizations. the way i have always put this, any place in any country that either cannot or will not deal with these elements -- that has been the justification coming out of that authorization for the broader use of force against individual targets. the concern i have is, first of all, we don't know. we don't know the actual justifications for that. number one. and
off the top of this segment that this is sort of bad pursuit for republicans. this is not a winning argument for republicans to make. putting all of that aside, the politics, i always think, and it is worth pointing out this was adopted in 2004 before obama. this was not a response to president obama in arizona. so i think it is worth putting that aside. i always find it interesting and sort of telling when legislators are activists try to go around enforcing existing law. and the reason for that are political and potentially even cultural. but for example, on this one, the requirement, the existing laws require u.s. citizenship in the case of voting in any federal election. requiring proof of that is the objection, the contention here. i'm not sure that we should be trying to go around existing law and finding out ways to say, you don't have to prove it. we'll take you on your word. if it is hard for someone to prove, let's make it easier. let's fix the problem that way so that both sides are satisfied. say, okay, we don't want to put a single group out of order here and force then
obama, you lied. >> i think it's about dignity and respect. >> so this go-round, he's got the rifle, i've got the rack. >>> we begin with the republican party facing a serious case of the mondays. after a weekend carouse iing at cpac, no doubt downing a few in honor of st. patrick, today came the reckoning with the revelation of their own autopsy on what went badly wrong in 2012. this morning, it fell to rnc chair, reince priebus to give his party an uncompromising look in the rearview mirror. >> our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. >> yes, mr. priebus presided over the party for all of that and he remains in charge for the release of the savage and scolding document, "the growth and opportunity project." gop. get it? a blistering report based on 52,000 voter contacts. and the respondents apparently didn't mince their words. >> focus groups described our party as narrow minded. out of touch. and, quote, stuffy old men. >> by the way, it's reince prieb

in protest of the obama admission's secretory over its drone war fare program. >> dan senor, you've been involved in republican presidential primaries lately. sorry about that. how would those issues stack up in new hampshire and iowa and south carolina and florida? >> i think the politics, his politics on pure fiscal issues will have tremendous resonance as his father experienced in some primary states and caucus states. i think what is untested is -- from a -- from a political standpoint is his position on foreign policy. his father never really broke through on the neoisolationist politics at the grassroots level beyond a narrow segment of the electorate. rand who i've spent time talking about these issues is much salvier than his father. >> his father blamed in effect u.s. foreign policy for 9/11. i haven't really dug in deep to the cross tabs but i'm guessing that probably doesn't help in western iowa. rand is salvier than that, right? >> sure. talking about the president being in israel. so rand's father was extremely tough on israel which did not play well with, for instance, evan

and republicans can come together to figure out how we move forward with the big problems that we're facing and i think that's going to be the real battle, christine. we've seen democrats and president obama are ready to really compromise and to really negotiate putting on the table changes to medicare and social security in addition to real revenue so the question is going to be what are republicans willing to do? >> let's talk about it. the big difference between the senate bill and paul ryan's republican bill that passed the house. ryan's bill didn't get universal support among the republicans. in the house, ten republican members voted no. to the senate, five more refused to get on board. amy, are you surprised that republicans are breaki ining ra on the budget talks? >> in that case it was because it wasn't conservative enough. the democrats as we just saw in the senate -- the senate democrats as we saw did not have it on their budget either. they are documents about priorities. on the house side we saw that house republicans most of them with a couple exceptions said their priority is to ba

next week's budget fight, the respective caucuses have just closed their doors on the republican budget for next year. meanwhile the sequester cuts start to kick in and president obama is getting flack for canceling white house tours. now there is word -- no it's not. all right. so thanks so much. we'll check in with our kelly o'donnell on mark sanford. we just showed you the video. kelly, you're there for me, right? >> reporter: i can hear you, thomas. i'm not sure you can see me. >> yes, i can see and hear you and it looks like you have beautiful trees in south carolina behind you. let's talk about south carolina. it is primary day down there. mark sanford been getting a lot of press and a lot of the coverage i've been reading about is this is going to be a street fight for how this will advance. >> well, this is one of those occasions, thomas, where the sheer number of candidates makes this so unpredictable. it's rare to have an opening like this in south carolina politics where people in office tend to stay a long time. so 16 republicans jumped in, including the former governor, and

obama had faced him and him in last year's election? who would be living here? during the republican primary, rick santorum and newt gingrich just couldn't see eye to eye and they trained their sights on each other. >> at times you just sort of, you know, that worrisome moment that something is going to pop and we can't afford that in a nominee. >> i think long before rick came to congress i was busy being a rebel. those are just historic facts even if they're inconvenient for rick's campaign. >> reporter: but soon they stopped snipping at each other and started sniping at romney. before long, both men had dealt serious blows to the front-runner. santorum with the surprise squeaker in iowa followed by a gingrich win in south carolina. suddenly, mitt romney was on the ropes. a gingrich adviser went to the santorum camp. would the senator join the speaker on one ticket? no. santorum was surging and wanted his own shot but they still became strange bed fellows. >> i agree with rick's point. i would urge the states then to return most of the power back to the local communities. and the t

: more than months have passed since president obama was elected. rye now the republicans are offering a budget proposal that contains many of the same ideas voters rejected this fall. the republican budget would end the medicare guarantee as we know it and repeal the affordable care act. that's already providing benefits to so many families in my home state of rhode island and all across this country. rhode islanders do not want another republican budget proposal that jeopardizes our economic recovery, gives away billions of dollsars in tax subdies in big oil and tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. they want a budget that reflects our values as a nation, promises we made to our seniors, invests in rebuilding our national infrastructure, protects our investments in education, and reduces our deficit by making smart cuts in spending and reforming our tax code. the republican budget fails to meet any of these standards. and i hope my colleagues will join me in opposing it this week. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expire
guard by a hot mike. i'm jake tapper and this is "the lead." the national lead president obama on open mike takes a dig at congress to israel's leader. by congress of course we mean republicans. house speaker john boehner reacts in our exclusive interview. >>> also in national the cdc now says one in every 50 children has autism. one in 50. there are real questions being raised at how the cdc arrived at these numbers. >>> and the sports lead. how long has it been since the miami heat lost a game? well, back then most of us had not even heard of the harlem shake. good time. >>> we begin with the world lead. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as
of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise. work with the republicans in congress together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance a budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. >> good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrasts. years.get balances in 10 their budget never balances. and raises $1 worth of taxes. i think the question for the american people s. which budget actually helps? which helps people? well, i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people out there looking for the government to do the very same thing they are having to do at home. which budget helps those who are in need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. theirs doesn't. theirs brings about the demise of those programs. which budget brings about the kind of tax reform that people want in this country? lower rates, fair and simpler tax code. our budget does that. theirs rai
about president obama. but a cnn poll shows that fewer than half of americans believe israel is an i ally of the united states. dramatically broken down by party lines. republicans felt israel was an ally, only a third of democrats thought so. israel is a major ally of the united states. >>> a michigan grandmother is found guilty of murdering her teenage grandson. they saw the glock that sandra lane used to shoot jonathan hoffman multiple times. lane claims she acted in self defense in an argument with the 17-year-old but prosecutors had this evidence. a 911 call made by hoffman. >> 911, what's your emergency? >> i've been shot. >> what? >> i've just been shot. >> where are you at? okay. how did you get shot? who shot you? >> my grandma shot me. >> your grandma and grandpa shot me? >> my grandma. i'm going to die. [ inaudible ] >> i got shot again. help me. >> you got shot again. are they still there? >> someone get help now. i need help. now! >> are they still there? >> yes. >> i think -- >> lane reportedly faces at least 14 years in prison. >>> it's been 593 days since the united s
of of the gamble here that president obama and your party seem to be making was that threat of the sequester would be a deterrent to get republicans to the table. that didn't happen. but if we went into the implementation phase, the pain would be so widespread around the country there would be an outcry and pressure, public pressure, on republicans to come back to the table. we're not seeing that happen. in terms of what it was supposed to do for political pressure, is the sequester a bust? >> it is. in that respect. the calculation that the defense cuts would be so severe for the republicans, that they agree to alternative, turn out not to be true. and it is a very interesting situation because it shows how really -- really extreme the republican tea party style commitment is to cutting budgets. two reasons. number one, this is very dumb. a hundred percent of members of congress think it is a dumb way it make cut, yet it is happen ppg second, a significant can cut for defense in its across the board and republicans are walking away from what has been traditional strej j of their party which is st
. republicans criticized him that he never made it to israel in his first team. he seemed to de-prioritize it, but not the case today. here is obama with someone who he had a prickly if not distant relationship with. >> obama: i did enough the prime minister that they're very good looking young men who clearly got their good looks from their more. >> i could say the same thing of you're daughters. >> michael: when in doubt go to the children and that's what they did to break the ice. you'll remember netanyahu sported romney in the 2012 election. they were very good friends and his support was overt and vocal. let's go to netanyahu. he brought up things--first at the press conference, and here are some of the things he talked about. >> israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two peoples. we extend our hands in peace and in friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit along with the visit of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. >> michael: tom president obama will be going to palestine to
decade and join the house republican bill which just got shot down in the senate, and president obama expected to unveil his own version soon. >>> speaking of president obama he's on his way home aboard air force one, he left oman, jordan, a short time ago. king abdullah was there to say farewell, jordan is a close ally. during his whirlwind four-day visit to the middle east he stopped in israel and the west bank and urged young israelis to seek peace with the palestinians and got israel to apologize to turkey for a raid that killed nine activists on a turkish ship. >>> the president is flying home if you're flying out across the country, starting next month the faa announced it's shutting down 149 air traffic control towers because of those forced spending cuts. the closures will be phased in over a month starting next month in april. controllers many of them now out of work have concerns that the skies will be less safe. speaking about the skies being less safe a man from france headed to florida tried to dupe an airline crew into thinking he was the pilot a cording to philadelphia
that problem republican have with it. , our line for democrats. are you there? caller: yes. i don't think that what they are doing to obama after they put , inin the chair that we florida, as older people, as you call it, done it worked and paid into it, we need the health thing. i have been on its in putting sinced i have seen -- 1988. i have seen it three or four times change. why do they put any president in and they keep changing it? now, they put obama in their -- there. ,ou say it is not a racial call but it looks everything base -- that he says, they knock him down area an. we old people deserve to have -- proper medical care. you have other colors. host: this is a statement by the chairman of the policy committee -- host: back to the phones, rick in massachusetts is on our line for independents. go ahead. caller: good morning, everyone. i am in the upper middle income bracket and i support the health care law. until we get to the point where hospitals refuse people with no insurance, we have to make sure that people that can pay for it , pay for it. am a bit disgusted that the lar
privately before the meeting even begins, which is why i am excited that president obama seems to have changed course in the last three days. [laughter] i am sincere about this. it seems he's invited republicans for the first time to dinner 12 senators and president discussing without press conferences before without much comment afterwards to see what each side has in terms of with their aspirations have. he had lunch with paul ryan. for the reasons we don't understand is ronald reagan would of done that, george bush would have done that and for the country to be successful we have to put aside some of this vitriol that exists and begin to recognize it just because the other side doesn't have our view it doesn't mean that they are not motivated for love of country. we have to get to a different place where we can find a broad consensus based on principles. that's how we will win. ronald reagan for me is someone that is a role model not because of his great success. she is certainly that but also a role model for the political system that we have today. imagine a country with the energ
sick. and this incredible expense. >> reporter: after president obama declared the law unconstitutional, republicans came in though defend doma. the case comes in a different political climate than four years ago when prop 8 became law. an example, yesterday republican adviser karl rove said in the next election he could see pub one of the republican candidates favoring same-sex marriage. >> we will be covering a lot next week. thank you very much. >>> an apology from the irs over a training video that parodied star trek and paid for by taxpayer money. kelly o'donnell is in washington with more on that story. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well, anytime your tax money is wasted, it's frustrating but especially so when it is the irs that's accused of poor judgment. a congressional committee found this star trek spoof didn't have any training value in it at all. to boldly go hollywood. ♪ the irs spent $60,000. >> captain log. >> reporter: making two videos including this elaborate "star trek" parody. >> sorry about the uniforms, the dry cleaner gave us the wrong order.
. they are uncertain -- neil: of obama, period. >> no, the shenanigans -- neil: he's part of that. >> by a 20 point margin, americans blame the uncertainty on republicans in congress -- neil: why are the president's approval numbers down eight points? >> not as far as congress'. neil: i understand, but, listen, they are down. now, i'm not here to defend the republicans in congress, but i think they've been awful on a lot of the issues, but facts of the matter is it takes two to tango, and both got us in the tangle. i wonder if neither really sees the need to address these issues or the urgency of the issues, those numbers are going to steadily go even more -- >> it's a problem. it's a vicious cycle. people -- neil: we're caught in it. >> exactly, then the economy doesn't do well, the congress starts more shenanigans -- neil: you can understand why people are nervous; right? >> of course i can. of course i can. wages also are not up. neil: right. >> productivity's up, but wages stagnating. that's another economic
with the sequester, and nothing bad happened, and the republicans called his bluff, and now i think he is in a tough position, sandra, because spending is going down. the sequester is taking effect. it was obama's intention to get federal spending to rise permanently from a historic degree of 21% of gdp. he wants 23% or 24%. it's going in the wrong direction now. sandra: saying more federal spending will help the economy, not something that all of us believe is true to be the case. >> no, but i got to go back a little bit there. it's absolutely true that he did miscalculate because neither the president nor myself nor many rational people -- sandra: would he admit that? >> yeah, i think he might, i don't know. nobody thought the house republicans were crazy enough to go through this ridiculous -- sandra: were they crazy? the sun came up. we get through the airport lines -- >> let me address that -- you guys had a ball on this, well, the sun came up, nothing changed. you may live to regret that because, you know, these problems are coming, and, in fact, today, michele bachmann, of all people, was dec
is right. when the republicans have a president, they follow the leader. i think that's why you're seeing success of governors in the state. they've the boss. >> right now president obama has the whip hand and he's the executive. he's using it more effective than i've seen in the past. regarding governors, the thing i don't like about this is shorter primary process and fewer debates. i couldn't like that because i want everyone to have a shot at this. if you can't raise that money right upfront, you should still have a shot. nobody thought barack obama could beat hillary clinton and he did. we had a lot of debates about this one. it wasn't romney. he outlasted everybody. i think that process issue is important. last question. what about old fashioned free enterprise? free markets? lower tax rates? limited government. does that not play any more? >> it does, but the sides chose on that. it's the 10 million undecided. they vote for the brand they think is better looking or speaks better. he's a terrible president but amazing brand. >> he's a great speaker. you get him from the teleprompter
for republicans every time, for bush twice voted against obama because of things like this, they still identify them. you're going to find go across the board women's rights, you know choice legislation obamacare, all these things, your number's going to be about 32% to 36% that's the number. that is exactly the number of people who want to repeal obamacare. i guarantee that movement, that group of people has not changed in this time. it's not a new group of people who have suddenly come across. there's an interesting part of it though, and this is what i would like to address to you. 21% want to change obamacare. now the prevailing wisdom in the media, and this is certainly part of the strategy, is that change means they don't like it because they don't like what it does that's new. i think that change number has a wedge of independents who lean republican who want to change it to limit what it can do. i also think there's a big chunk of democrats. jacki: who want it to do more. hal: who wish it had a single pair and will not say i support it but say i think we should change it and the change
so close to the residents that must've been rattling his windows. still, the republican chairman of the house foreign affairs committee delivered a blistering critique of the obama administration's conduct. >> for two bloody years, u.s. policy has been addressed. they initially saw him as a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. predictably, none of this is war. reporter: as if bashar al-assad is any closer to hang onto power, the ambassador said he is not a psychiatrist, but the receivers military situation is worsening. jon: the longer this goes on from the more damage goes on. >> they are seeing hezbollah soldiers and weapons systems coming from iran and using iraq as a transit point. the secretary of state was recently in saudi arabia by providing arms to the rebels directly while the u.s. has non-lethal it. ambassador defended the administration's approach. >> is secretary. >> is secretary john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the conc
